Production – 350 dozen     

Colour: Deep Ruby Red

Bouquet: Lifted aromas of plums and ripe currents with a touch of choc mint in the background.

Palate: A stunning vintage showing ripe sweet fruits of black currents, dark plums and black forest gateaux enveloped by earthen notes of cedar and fresh leather. Structured ever present fine tannins give length, weight and longevity to this wine. A classic wine from a classic vintage.

Awards and Reviews:

“Elegance and style. This wine has it in spades, from the perfumed, leafy sweet fruit notes on the nose, through to the brilliantly crafted palate combing medium bodied fruit with fine, powdery tannin and super fine grained oak.  It all sits together in perfect harmony.  And the tune is just going to get better as it ages.  Terrific wine. Cellar 12 years”
95/100  Ray Jordan

“2018 was a perfect vintage in Margaret River, and produced wines of ripeness, balance and power. Pungent intensity of blackberry/cassis flavour, and streamlined length though the finish. It extends like a bicep, flexing its regional pedigree and showing the bounty of the vintage. If there was a quibble, it would be the metallic edge to the tannins through the finish, however this is absorbed by the fruit, so it remains minor in the scheme of things.”
94/100 Halliday’s Wine Companion 2022 – Erin Larkin 13th August
